Here are the slides and here is a link to video from the SC08 panel. The panel itself was very interesting. In particular the progress that is being made in integrated photonics (a topic I have an increasing interest in understanding better) shown by Keren Bergman was very neat.
Austin itself is a very cool town. Interesting fact: Austin is the largest city in the US without a major professional sports team. Lots of trees, excellent jogging trails. I went for a jog and the trails were almost crowded, more people out enjoying themselves than even Vancouver which is a pretty outdoorsy place. Of course there is also a lot of tech, with Dell, AMD, Intel and several other big players with major offices in town.
